Rocking Chair Made From "Junk" Parts

Other people have made chairs out of old tractor seats but we've never seen a rocking chair as nice as this one made entirely from junk parts by Loron Skretteberg, Carson, N. Dak.
  "It's made from junk pile parts yet it looks very good in every setting, whether it's a sun room, living room or patio," he says, adding that he calls the chairs "western rockers."
  The seat is from a horse-drawn mower, the wheels are from an IHC press drill, and the rockers are leaf springs from an antique pickup. The backrest was made from two antique fence posts with an old sickle bar crossbar that supports the wooden backrest. The harness hames on the side came from an old harness his dad used on the farm. He put the toolbox from an IHC grain binder on one side and two horseshoes on the other to hold newspapers and magazines.
  "I have so many people that want them I could never find enough parts to build one for everyone. To keep the peace, I just make them for family," he says.
